It is a great program but without a good tutorial. There are a lot of technical documents, which is interesting if there is first a basic tutorial to help the user start. To really understand this software there must be a knowledge of autohotkey. For those familiar with autoit and not autohotkey, there may be a learning curve. See More
Bug.n can increase the available screen estate by freeing up the space occupied by the Microsoft Windows Taskbar & the title bar for every single window by hiding and replacing all with a single slim status bar. The status bar shows the current config of your window setup & can also show system information like time, date and memory usage. See More
XMonad is written, configured, and fully extensible in Haskell. This means that users aren't limited to a small set of pre-programmed layouts and actions: anything can be programmed into the configuration. It's simple to modify basic settings, and the example config has lots of comments to get you started. Haskell keeps this code clean, concise, and readable, and its type system keeps you safe from any serious mistakes. This makes it fast and light, even on very small and slow systems. See More
The use of Haskell as an extension language means that popular pieces of functionality are easily shared and widely available as Haskell Libraries. Many default layouts, and tools for quickly and easily building your own, are available through XMonad-contrib, and highly re-usable configurations are commonly shared through blog articles and the Xmonad Wiki. The documentation in XMonad-contrib is very clear and easy to read. See More
XMonad separates screens and workspaces. A screen "projects" a workspace. You can put a window to a specific screen, regardless of which workspace is currently projected onto that screen. This is more intuitive than other WMs e.g. i3, which only has the notion of workspace but not "screen" and requires you to remember workspace numbering. It is especially beneficial for multi-monitor setups. See More
This template allows you to use 2/3, 1/2 and 1/3 in both the x and the y direction (except for the middle 1/3 x 1/3 of the screen) and allows for using the middle 2/3 x 2/3 and middle 3/4 x 3/4 of your screen. See More
If you change the resolution of your screen (happens often if used in a VM), the percentage based layouts break, so you will need to restart the program . This is very easy to do using an option from the tray icon, but it would be nice if it auto-restarted if the program detects a resolution change. See More
